Open Data Benchmark Study

The survey, sponsored by Socrata and conducted by EMC Research, was designed to better understand the current attitudes and opinions on the open data environment among publishers and users of open data. The survey asks respondents from governments throughout the United States a series of questions about open data in their organizations. The questions cover a wide range of open data aspects including policy, philosophy and approach, benefits and impacts, and asks them to evaluate government performance on providing this data.
